Working with or near powerlines is a high risk activity and the proper precautions need to be followed in order to avoid incidents like the one that happened in Sydney’s Lower North Shore.

A man died in hospital after being electrocuted while working on powerlines.

The 39 year old man was electrocuted while working on a cherry picker. He was treated at the scene and then transported to Royal North Shore Hospital in a critical condition.

WorkSafe will be conducting an investigation into the cause of the incident.
